  1. Misery scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    Soft, elegant, delicate. If so of course we can say about Oktomor. I would say that the peat stories here are more on the background, nuts and caramel were more dominant for my taste. Great job with the barrels.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Smoky-cognac, nutty assorted, bright sweet caramel, pickled apples, smoked foods, milk chocolate, car first aid kit, pills, tingling nose with a bright sour smoke.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Sweet with a pleasant wine sourness, the body is dense and almost liqueur, apples, nuts, smoked meat, malt.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Tart, dryish with hints of smoke and soot, smoked meat, caramel comes back again and confectionery notes appear.

    Perfect whisky after a day on the moor cutting peats. Needs diluting to take the edge off. Sweet taste and definitely not unpleasant as always with Octomore.

    • Nose
      At the beginning the typical big heavy cloud of smoke. He is definitely both sweeter and spicier than the 06.1.
      The sweetness is much fruity. The Limousin barrels are clearly noticeable. It smells like berries and bright fruit (pear?) And has a little bit of syrup. Spicy oak tones underline the whole thing. It tingles in the nose instead of cooling, as at 06.1.
      With the addition of water, the smoke swings away from the campfire towards the phenolic. It gets maritime with lots of algae and salty sea breezes. For the sweetness and the barrel completely in the background.
    • Taste
      This is the smoke hammer! Tastes almost na Laphroaig. Lots of iodine, seaweed and peat smoke. Then it gets really warm on the tongue and on the back palate the typical notes of European oak rise. Dark chocolate and toffee.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky and warm.

  10. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Strong, overwhelming, especially on the nose. But now I have a bit of similar feeling like Kelpie, the less sometimes is more. But it was almost 86 points. :)
    • Nose
      Smoke and ash, medicines, honey, salted caramel, big dose of apple, seaweed. Sweet, acidic, lively cognac notes.
    • Taste
      Strong! Rose, honey, salted caramel, tobacco, punch, orange peel, salt, ash and smoke, spices.
    • Finish
      Long, tobacco, spices, smoke.
